debate. senate majority leader harry reid announcing the assault weapons ban authored by california senator dianne feinstein will not be included in the democratic gun control legislation that currently is working its way through the chamber. instead reid says feinstein's proposal will have, quote, an opportunity for a vote, possibly as a separate amendment. now this effort was sparked by the newtown school shooting in december and since then, we have seen a surge in applications for gun permits across this country. according to the fbi we saw a record 19 1/2 million background checks for firearms last year. nearly three million of them coming in december alone. that is the most for any month on record. and more than 7 million from december through february. that is a 54% increase from the previous year. this national trend is echoed in the microcosm of newtown, connecticut. where law enforcement say they have seen the pace of applications for gun permits double. so what does this all mean for the gun control debate, an effort going forward? joining me fox news political analyst jua
. let me throw a few facts on the table. the government accountability office that works for harry reid and obama, they say 125 billion dollars in estimated improper payments in the federal government? i've got another one of their reports, 510 billion dollars of duplicative wasteful programs in the federal government. that's a lot of money. i've got another document here, a summary of the social security, medicare boards of trustees. i think they work for obama and they say here, medicare and social security cannot sustain protected long-term programs costs and that somebody needs to do something about it very fast. what has obama done about any of this? nothing about the 500 billion dollars. nothing about the 125 billion dollars. nothing about social security, medicare, or medicaid. and then they go around talking about how they care about people. they don't care about anybody. they represent big government, and that's all they represent. >> sean: and mark, the results aren't good. let's be honest here, we have 9 million people, fewer americans in the work force, and 50 million americ

universal background checks. harry reid is going to have to cobble together something. something meaningful that he can pass and move on to this house so we can get some bills signed. i really doubt the bill in its pure form as dianne feinstein has proposed it will see the light of day. >> right. all the so-called wise men and women of washington say senator feinstein's bill, as you say, has no chance of passing the full senate, but every day you and i see the incredible toll that this is taking. just this week, we saw the death of a 6-year-old little -- 6-month-old little baby girl called jonalah watkins of chicago. she was shot five times while her father was changing her diaper in the front seat of the minivan. the father was also shot. incredible, the mother had been shot, herself, once, while she was pregnant. what are we supposed to do about this? are we supposed to just walk away from some kind of meaningful legislation, when babies as young as 6 months old are murdered while their diapers are being changed? >> you know, martin, this is probably the most unspeakable tragedy we can th

depots in western nevada monday night. >>> senate majority leader harry reid is removing a proposed assault ban rifle -- assault rifle ban from new gun legislation that he will send to the full senate for consideration. reid says keeping the assault weapons ban would have guaranteed a republican filibuster to block the measure. >> i'm not going to try to put something on the floor that won't succeed. i want something that will succeed. i think the worst of all worlds may be to bring something to the floor and it dies there. >> reid says that senator dianne feinstein could introduce her proposed ban on assault weapons as an amendment to new gun legislation in order to at least get a vote on that. >>> and new shocking sex and drug allegations against the man who used to be the voice of elmo. the 24-year-old is suing kevin clash alleging he smoked crystal meth while engaging in sexual activity with stephens. the lawsuit alleges he also gave sheldon poppers as a sexual aid. that generally refers to capsule that's give users a rush when broken and inhaled. his attorney calls the suit mer
